I was minding my own business browsing in Chrome when all of the sudden
a new tab opened and pulled me away from my browsing to the Chrome
Extension Quick Tour. Apparently, the extension has been upgraded from
0.993 to 0.995 (automatic upgrading of extensions without a browser
restart is a great feature of Chrome), but the upgrade SHOULD NOT
interrupt my browsing. Hopefully the next automatic upgrade won't
interrupt me in such a way.

Thanks!

Hi,

Thanks for your feedback!
This is just an effort to let our users know what is new with the upgrade, otherwise there is no way we could tell users about new features added to the addon or fixed major issues.

But you have a valid point which is, until there are big changes to tell users about do open just quick tour page.

I will make sure the quick tour page doesnt come to your browsing again.

Regards,
Vivek

Hi,

Is there any estimation about dev Chrome support?
I'm using a bookmarklet which is good enough, but a proper integration would be much better, of course.

Thank you!

Hi,

The latest addon version in gallery now supports dev Chrome.

Proper integration is only possible after Chrome implements required
APIs for sidebar, toolbar, cookie handling, context menus etc.

Lets wait till the time!

Vivek

Oh, great, I see it. Cool!

So may be you can remove " 'Dev' (i.e. non-final) builds of Google Chrome are not supported"
